Mock drafts before
the all star games, the combine, and FA are worthless. They might get the first few picks pretty close, but from about 10 on up through the rest of the draft its a joke. The players, by and large, might go fairly close to where they are shown, but the teams...
Untill FA is over you cannot know what each team needs- and then you STILL have to try and outguess the GM's and coaches.
Add to the fact that there are fully 1/4 of the teams with new HC's; add in the new assistants and coordinators, and its a mess. Payton for example- Leinart was the popular pick for the aint's untill he was the HC- now some are thinking Young or someone else. One week after the beginning of FA is about the time to try and do a mock- untill then it is worthless.
